That rings a faint bell. I've seen something like it.
I don't remember what I saw it on, probably it was that one. Creepy!

I've been buying at post-Halloween prices for several years now. The first year that I made a major haul, I went to Spirit and Spencer's & Halloween Express and bought loads of masks at 75% off. $20 masks for $5... can't beat that. Those stores have caught on, though, and they start their prices 30-40% higher at the beginning, so the after Halloween sales aren't as good. And they stock a lot less product, too.

I make lots of figures out of pvc pipe, which is pretty cheap, and old scrap lumber, which is cheaper, and loads of old clothing out of the basement. I usually hit JoAnn Fabrics once a year with a 50% off on one item coupon, and buy about ten or fifteen yards of cheap material (black most years, this year white to glow under blacklight). I'm handy enough with a sewing machine and a staple gun to make some pretty decent ghouls for a very cheap price. Cheap is the key; I'm half Jewish and a quarter Scottish, so I'll squeeze a nickel 'till the buffalo farts.

I'll post some of the night photos with everything lit up when I get a bit more time.

Cheers!

this'll be the first year i do post-halloween purchasing :) i'm excited
Last night 'twas witching Hallowe'en
Dearest; an apple russet- brown
I pared, and thrice above my crown
Whirled the long skin; they watched in keen;
I flung it far; they laughed and cried me shame
Dearest, there lay the letter of your name!

Wonderful, Mac!!
If I were a kid, I'd never want to leave your house. I'd want to move in! lol
It just reminds me so much of the shows like Roseanne where they went all-out decorating.
